We’re going to be having some fun with Haggis and poetry to raise money at church for our pilgrimage this summer.  If you’re going to be close, please stop by!

      

St. Paul’s Church has scheduled a Burns’ Night Supper for Saturday, May 5 at 6:00pm.  This event is a Scottish tradition which commemorates the native poet Robert Burns.  The supper will feature humor, entertainment and dancing, with a bagpiper performing that evening, as well as at services on Sunday, May 6.  The traditional Scottish menu is Haggis, mashed tatties (potatoes) and mashed neeps (turnips), with a more conventional American choice of chicken dinner being offered as well.  Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-12, and free for children 5 and under. 

 

This Burns’ Night Supper will serve as a fundraiser for the Journey to Adulthood youth group, which is embarking on its first pilgrimage in July.  Their destination is the Island of Cumbrae, Scotland.

 

St. Paul’s Church is located at 145 Main Street in Southington.  For more information about the Burns’ Night Supper, or to order tickets, please call the church office at 628-8486.
